female-murderer

Photograph of serial killer Joanna Dennehy with one of her daughters. Dennehy was responsible for the murders of three men in March 2013, The bodies of her victims were found in ditches, covered in multiple stab wounds. Dennehy had two children with her former partner, who she split with approximately 4 years before the murders occurred, with her partner stating that he left with the children in order to escape Dennehy’s drug and alcohol fueled violent outbursts. 

When Dennehy was arrested for the crimes she showed no remorse, and pled guilty to three murders and two attempted murders. She reportedly laughed when the judge sentenced her to a whole life prison term. 

We - and by we, I mean, white feminists - need to talk about how [the Charleston terrorist] used white female purity to justify murdering black people. 

“I have to do it,” he said. “You rape our women.” 

This myth - that black men rape and assault white women - has been used to justify the murder of black people for centuries. It was used to justify lynchings. It was used to justify slavery. It is still used today.  

And white feminists absolutely NEED TO REPUDIATE this myth, because white women’s tacit approval - and sometimes vocal agreement - with this myth is part of what allows this terrorism to happen. 

People like the Charleston terrorist believe white women need to be protected from black men. 

We don’t. 

I stand in solidarity with the black community, not with people like Dylann Storm. He does not speak for me. 

(100% inspired LaKeyma Pennyamon’s facebook post asking why white women haven’t already done this. Thank you.)

Raymond Fernandez was one half of the lonely hearts killers. Along with Martha Beck Fernandez was responsible for the murders of as many as 20 women. Fernandez had been indulging in criminal activity prior to meeting Beck, having contacted women through lonely hearts ads, and used this as an opportunity to steal jewellery, money and checks after he had seduced them and gained there trust. This was how he met Martha Beck, however when he told her of his criminal enterprise she immediately became a willing participant. Despite her willingness to participate in criminal activity, she found it incredibly difficult to see Fernandez seducing women, and fuelled by jealousy began killing women that Fernandez become involved with.

Female serial killer Enriqueta Marti, the ‘vampire of barcelona’ lived in 19th century Spain where she kidnapped, prostituted, and killed children. She worked as a nanny and maid before becoming a prostitute, but soon realised that she could make even more money serving the pedophiles who visited her brothels. As she was richer than most of the population at that time, she owned various apartments across Barcelona, all under different names. She began to dress in rags and begging during the day even though her secret life was making her rich, so that she could gain the trust of children with promises of sweets, and force them to pretend to be her own child. 

Soon she decided to expand her business, and cater to the wives and mistresses of the men she served. Marti was the supply for the demand. She would use hair, fat, blood and bones, which she ground into powder, to make various youth elixirs, face creams, and medicines.
In 1909 she was arrested for running a brothel soliciting children aged 3 to 14 but because of her connections with wealthy customers was never trialled.

Claudia Elias saw a young girl in her neighbours house but when she asked Enriqueta who the girl was, she had no reply. This started a bout of rumours which eventually caught the attention of law enforcement. When they searched the house they found two young girls. Teresita Congost who had been reported missing and was returned to her parents, and Angelita who didn’t know her last name. She told police that a 5 year old boy called Pepito used to live there until Angelita saw her “mom” kill him on the kitchen table. 

On second inspection of the flat they were horrified at what they found, a sack full of bloody clothes and a knife, and another full of at least 30 human bones. 
Another room contained 50 pitchers, bowls, and jars filled with congealed blood, hair, and powdered bone. All ready for sale. Upon visiting Marti’s other residences, police uncovered fake walls and human remains hidden in the ceiling. In a garden was a 3 year old’s skull and bones belonging to a 3,6 and 8 year old. Marti was imprisoned, but her customers were protected because of their high status, authorities claimed that they were oblivious to the unspeakable crimes Marti committed to provide her services. 

Whilst awaiting trial Marti slashed her wrists with a piece of wood but survived, only to be beaten to death by her fellow inmates.

The DHHS data shows that children who are raised by a single parent are more likely to be abused by their mothers than their fathers. 70.6% were abused by their mothers, whereas only 29.4% were abused by their fathers. Furthermore, mothers are 2.4 times more likely to kill their children than fathers are. A study conducted using children who have died at the hands of one parent between 2001-2006 revealed that 70.8% were killed by their mothers, whereas only 29.2% were killed by their fathers. The technical term for a mother who kills their own child is called ‘’maternal filicide’’. Mothers who deliberately kill their children tend to be found not guilty by reason of insanity. 68% are sent to mental hospitals and only 27% are sent to prison; however, when fathers kill their children, 72% go to prison and only 14% are hospitalized.

Studies have found that children under the age of eight are more likely to be killed by their mothers, while fathers have a higher rate of killing their children above the age of eight. Throughout childhood, sons are at greater risk of being killed by one of their parents than daughters are.

Murderer Audrey Marie Hilley pictured with her victim and husband Frank Hilley. Over the course of several months Audrey slowly poisoned her husband with arsenic, this lead to several hospital visits for nausea and tenderness in the abdomen, when he passed away the autopsy revealed issues that were very similar to hepatitis so the doctors originally did not suspect foul play. However, when Audrey’s daughter Carol started attending the hospital with similar symptoms the doctors were more concerned, eventually finding Aldrich Mees’ Lines on her fingernails, which are indicative of Arsenic poisoning. When they tested Carol’s hair they found 50 times the typical amount of arsenic in her system, and upon exhumation of Frank’s body they tested his hair and nails and discovered abnormally high levels of arsenic.

Audrey was charged with murder and, after three years of living life on the run under a false name, she was convicted of murder and sentenced to life, as well as an extra 20 years for attempting to kill her daughter.

In 2005, China Arnold stuffed her infant daughter in a microwave for two whole minutes after getting in a heated argument with her boyfriend about the child’s biological father. It was only the next day when China decided to take the baby to the hospital, where she died of her injuries. During the trial, China’s boyfriend lied on the stand, claiming that his son told him that he’d pulled the lifeless body from the microwave after a neighbor’s boy placed her in there. This claim resulted in a mistrial. However, during the second trial, the mother of the boy who had allegedly placed the baby in the microwave testified that he was not at their house at the time of the murder. China was convicted of aggravated murder and was sentenced to life without parole.

I’ve done this at God’s request. ”
